Hellraiser Actor Writes Plays for London Horror Festival

WMDHidden Basement Productions have teamed up with writer and actor Nicholas Vince to present psychological horror plays for this year’s London Horror Festival, at the Etcetera Theatre, Camden.

Nicholas, known for playing the Chatterer Cenobite in Clive Barker’s Hellraiser film; has dramatised two stories from his collection, ‘What Monsters Do’, which is rated 5 stars on amazon.com. He is working closely with Hidden Basement Productions to bring them to the stage.

The show, “What Monsters Do”, consists of two 25 minute horror plays performed as a double bill. The stories, ‘Tunes from the Music Hall’ and ‘Green Eyes’ explore love, lust, obsession, the bond of family and the dark violence that lurks behind seemingly innocent people. Nicholas said, “The plays centre on the theme: it is not our flesh, but our acts which make us monsters.”

Directing the plays will be Philip North, co-writer and director of ‘The Puppetry of Flesh’, which sold out at last year’s London Horror Festival. He said, ‘I’m thrilled that a horror icon like Nick has chosen to work with Hidden Basement to bring his dark stories to life. It’s great to have such rich source material for a project. I think the piece is really unique and a must see for all fans of horror. I’m looking forward to unleashing these two disturbing tales on London audiences.’

‘What Monsters Do’ is on at the Etcetera Theatre, Camden at 7:30pm, 25th-27th October 2013 as part of the London Horror Festival.

Tickets: £10 (£8 conc.)
